In fact we have probably not 'culled' enough admins, if one were to judge 
solely by management criteria.  It is not done lightly.  Also, we tend to 
assume admins act in good faith, and that if they get things wrong (happens) 
then it is reversible.  That is not exactly accurate: but any admin not 
acting in good faith is probably a troubled person, not just a troubled 
admin.  And mistakes alone don't justify a de-sysop.
